A man convicted of firearms charges will remain a relatively free man until at least May 25, when he is set to face a sentencing hearing.
Cody J. E. Wilson was charged with two counts of possession of a prohibited firearm, as well as one count each of storage of a firearm contrary to regulations and carrying a weapon or prohibited device.
During his trial, which included a witness’s video of his somewhat rough arrest, Wilson’s defence attempted to question whether a handgun was, in fact, found on Wilson’s person and who put the handgun under Wilson’s seat in his vehicle.
An 11-member jury found Wilson not guilty of one count of possession of a prohibited weapon for the handgun found under his car seat, which the defence postulated could have been placed there by his girlfriend at the time, while finding him guilty of all other counts.
Wilson is out of custody on bail.
